Workshop Lead: Jäjé

Through a three part workshop series entitled 'Found', multidisciplinary artist Jäjé explores the unique yet universal nature behind one's individual story. Geared towards fortifying both individual and communal storytelling practice, participants are guided through a mix of written, verbal and physical exercises to prompt a better understanding of one's own voice as well as the voices behind the many stories we often hear across intersections such as culture. Participants can expect to learn; the core principles of storytelling, the art of finding the story behind one's voice, tools to enhance their writing & performance skills and a greater appreciation for stories across race, age, gender and ethnicity. Join us at the Jamii Hub for an exciting series of workshops on June 2nd , 9th , and 16th from 7pm to 8:30pm.


Heads-up: We will be on a break in July and August. Jamii's indoor activities & workshop series will commence in September 2024.
